Webmail Access

We are working to make things better and easier for all Members, not to mention, more secure, stable, private, and state-of-the-art.

 

Our email server has been replaced.

 

Your Email is being received by your NEW Email Account.

 

Please contact Technical Support above to get your new password to access it.

 

The new system offers IMAP, POP3, and Webmail services.  The old email content may not be migrated over yet. The service is a free service.  We are currently working out technical anomalies with our old server.

 

Once you have your new password, you can go to:

 

                Webmail: https://p3plzcpnl489507.prod.phx3.secureserver.net:2096

                or

                Webmail: https://mail.calcna.ab.ca/webmail

                Use your email address and password to login.

 

Email Client Setup (Computers, Tablets, Phones)

 

For email client setup, please use the following to setup your account.  This is compatible with computers and phones running iOS, Windows, and Android.  It is highly recommended to use the encrypted system.  Some computers and devices that are not modern enough will fail encryption setup.  Note the servers are different when using encrypted connections.

 

Email clients such as Outlook will autodetect all the settings.  You will get a certificate warning, as the system is now hosted on SecureServer.net email servers.  Click yes to accept any certificate prompts.

Volunteer Opportunities

CCNA is volunteer led, not grant fed .....

We always need your time and energy and expertise, whether for a short time or longer. Give our office a call at 263-8080 or send an email to office@calcna.ab.ca. Consider joining one (or more) of these CCNA committees that could use your help:

Fund Raising Committee

Do you have money raising experience? Or are you just good at getting other people to give you money? We would like to talk to you!

Information Providers Committee

Would you like to help a non-profit organization develop an internet presence? Reach out and help a charity, give us a call.

Volunteer Coordinating Committee

Do you have great organizational skills? Can you delegate with flare? Are you proficient at patting volunteers on the back? The CCNA needs you.

HTML Committee

Do you enjoy making web pages? Would you like to create pages for non-profit organizations or develop a Special Interest Group page? Visit the HTML Committee's web page and see what has been done and what there may be for you to do.

Help Desk Committee

Can you explain over the phone or by email the ins and outs of setting up a graphical browser? Can you help the PINE confused emailer? Are you technically inclined and like to give assistance? There may be a spot for you on the HelpDesk Committee.

Technical Committee

Do you have a knack at getting routers and modems to work when they would rather zone out? Are you experienced with UNIX servers? Can you set up a pc faster than a cowboy can rope a calf? (Just kidding.) Ask about opportunities on the Tech Committee.

Education (Courses) Committee

Are you really comfortable using the CCNA LYNX browser and PINE? Do you make great home pages? Do search engines do your bidding and give you what you're looking for most of the time? Would you like to share your expertise with others? Inquire about teaching a course for beginners.

Newsletter Committee

Are you a strong need-to-know type person? Is there a journalist inside you screaming to get out? Look into the Newsletter Committee.

Public Access Terminal (PATs) Committee

Do you like to meet new people? Would setting people up with their own CCNA account give you warm fuzzies? Do you like helping people one-on-one and in-person? Talk to us about joining the PAT team.

Needless to say, you may have expertise that we have not identified ... don't be bashful about raising your hand!

Please visit the Bill Hanson Tribute Site. Bill was a long time volunteer.

Special thanks to our dedicated Volunteers without whose support and assistance many users would have been deprived of the modern communication and information facilities.

CCNA appreciates the active involvement of former Office Manager and Executive Director Shirley Barwise, who has given an enterprising and motivating contribution to the association since its start. She has continued her devotion to CCNA as a volunteer by giving free training courses to senior citizens.

CCNA also appreciates the active involvement of its Board of Directors

 

 

We Ask For Your Help and Support/Charitable Status

 

Our aim has been to provide universal access to advanced information services and computer networks, and to strengthen the relationship between the community at large and its citizens. We feel we have succeeded to the best of our ability and resources, in fact, beyond our original expectations in many cases. For example, our Barrier Free Program has helped many disadvantaged individuals and families with free computer equipment and dial-up internet services. We were also participants in the Federal Government's Computer Access Program (CAP).

This has been made possible by the generous donations of our sponsors, through your membership fees, and the many hours of service provided for free by our corps of dedicated volunteers. However, we do need additional continuing funding if we are to keep on providing you with these services.

 

We need your support in terms of donations because we are NOT a government funded organization. We do everything we can to hold costs to a minimum, in the face of escalating expectations and some very real hard costs (e.g., phone lines).

 

Therefore, we are asking you to consider making a donation as you are able for this worthy cause. Money offers us the greatest flexibility, but we also welcome goods and services if that works better for you.

 

The Calgary Community Network Association is a Registered Charitable Organization.  All donations of cash $10.00 and greater will receive Tax Receipts.  All goods donated are evaluated as to value and appropriate Tax Receipts are issued.

Note: Membership fees and dial-up access charges are not considered donations and Tax Receipts can not be issued for these.

 

Please contribute generously so that we can continue to provide a high level of service to you and make the Calgary Community Network a true community network in the information age. Inquiries and donations may be sent to the Calgary Community Network Association Office.

User Agreement

 

This Agreement represents the complete agreement and understanding between the Calgary Community Network Association, (herein after called "CCNA"), and User and supersedes any other written or oral agreement. Upon notice published on-line via the CCNA domain services home page at http://www.calcna.ab.ca/, CCNA may change these terms and conditions, and/or discontinue or change the services offered.

 

Terms and Conditions of account use:

 

1.       This Agreement shall remain in effect until the User terminates its account or CCNA cancels User's account. CCNA may occasionally require new registration and account information by the User to continue this service. In addition, the User shall notify CCNA in writing or by e-mail of any changes in the account information, such as address or phone number.

2.       CCNA reserves the right to change the terms and conditions by publishing on-line via the CCNA domain services home page at http://www.calcna.ab.ca/ at least 30 days in advance of the effective date of the change. Use by the User after the effective date constitutes acceptance of the new terms and conditions. If User does not agree to the new terms and conditions, the User may cancel this Agreement at any time by giving CCNA proper written notice in accordance with the terms and conditions stated herein. CCNA also reserves the right to terminate an account at any time for any reason.

3.       All registered users of the CCNA must provide accurate information on their application forms.

4.       CCNA will provide services on its host computing systems to individual Users in exchange for compliance with the terms and conditions of this document. CCNA services are defined as the use by the User of computing, telecommunications, software, and information services provided by CCNA. These services also include the provision of access to computing, telecommunications, software and information services provided by others via the world-wide computer network known as the Internet. Access to the Internet is sometimes temporarily disrupted by mechanical breakdown, technological changes, weather conditions and other forces beyond CCNA's control. User agrees that such temporary disruptions are not a breach of this agreement.

5.       When User has access to CCNA services such a e-mail, User agrees to maintain a secure password to the account. It is recommended that the User change the password on a regular basis to protect him/herself from the most common breach of Internet security.

6.       User agrees not to use any CCNA services to obtain the passwords of users on CCNA or other systems. The User agrees not to use CCNA services to make unauthorized attempts to access the systems and networks of others.

7.       The User agrees not to use CCNA services to violate copyright or other intellectual property rights of any author or publisher. For example, the User may not upload or download commercial software in violation of software license agreements.

8.       The User agrees to use the services provided by CCNA as permitted by applicable local, provincial, and federal laws. The User agrees, therefore, not to use these services to conduct any business or activity or solicit the performance of any activity that is prohibited by law.

9.       The User agrees to refrain from the use of obscene, abusive or otherwise objectionable language in either public or private messages. The User agrees to refrain from mass posting of the same message to many inappropriate Usenet newsgroups (Spamming). The User agrees to refrain from mass, unsolicited e-mailings. The User agrees to post advertisements only where appropriate, for instance in biz.for.sale, and other venues that specifically encourage or allow advertising. The User agrees to respect the conventions of the newsgroups, lists and networks to which the User is posting, including rules more restrictive than, but not limited to, the above. The user agrees to abide by CCNA's interpretation of the above. If the User needs help interpreting or applying  these rules, the User should ask CCNA by e-mail to Manager for assistance.

10.   Any use of CCNA system resources that disrupts the normal use of the system for other CCNA users is considered to be abuse of system resources and is grounds for administrative intervention. Some examples of system abuse include spawning dozens of processes, consuming excessive amounts of memory or CPU for long periods of time, and staying attached to modems while not "active" on the line.

11.   Violations of the CCNA conditions for use are unethical and may in some cases be criminal offences. You are expected to report to CCNA any information you may have concerning instances in which the conditions of use have been or are being violated. When CCNA becomes aware of possible violations, we will attempt to ask appropriate users about the matter. At the same time, in order to prevent further possible unauthorized activity, CCNA may suspend access to services to the individual account in question. Confirmation of violations may result in cancellation of the individual account and/or criminal prosecution. The account suspension may be rescinded at the discretion of CCNA.

12.   CCNA reserves the right to monitor Users' actions when this is necessary to determine whether or not the User is violating the conditions of use.

 

Warranties and Limitation of Liability

 

13.   Information contained on the CCNA is placed there for general informational and educational purposes and is, in no way, intended to refer or be applicable to any specific person, case, or situation.

14.   The User is solely responsible for the content and use of its account, and shall indemnify and hold CCNA harmless for any and all loss, cost, damage and expense due in whole or in part to the content and use of User's account. CCNA shall not be responsible for any consequential or other damages caused or alleged to be caused by User's account content or use on the Internet, or the User's inability to use the CCNA.

15.   Information provided on the CCNA is offered as a community service and is not a substitute for individual professional consultation.
